CEBU? philippines? kumusta na pare? (oops thats all i know how to write in tagalog)

ive never used the 3PK, or M8.. but i had a mars R before. this radio is much more comfortable (albeit a tad bigger) and gets more comfortable when you add the drop down wheel and thicker grips...... the biggest thing i love is the receiver is super tiny and lightweight and the knob is very fast and easy to use when scrolling through the different menus.

Harshguy,

The wheel is easy to install, but if you have big hands it would be quite hard to get the plug in. In any case, simply follow the instructions even if you couldn't understand Japanese and I am sure you'll get it to work and fit perfectly. Just the way I did on my helios. Don't be harsh on the thing it's plastic.. hehehee
Did it, And it was pretty easy but I have big hands and I needed some small tools to get the plugs in, but once it was pluged in it was a breeze. Only complaint is that they send me one too many of the case screws and forgot to send the 3MM little bolt to lock the handle from turning. It did include the longer 3MM. So I guess I will have to go to store and get one. Bummer though. And what every one else is saying about the drop down wheel...IT IS ALL TRUE. Once you get the drop down wheel on it is a whole new radio and a much more comfortable radio. Why it isn't standard equipment is beyond me. Probably so us RC junkies would have something to do....LOL

Thansk for all the info guys.
Thanks,
Stephen <><

I second that.

Anyone here knows whats the gray button below the steering wheel is for. I keep on pressing it and nothing's happening.Should the radio be on abs mode so I can access it?

I found a radio case made by sportwerks. Dont know if it will fit but it looks like team magic. I emailed horizon hobby to know if helios with wheel will fit into it. Its a good thing I didnt buy the team magic tx bag yet.

Sorry, I bought them from my LHS. I think the alu screws are for 1/8 buggy.
